The Sennheiser MD 445  is a new large-diaphragm, dynamic stage microphone offering a tight supercardioid pickup pattern, providing not only maximum isolation from other on-stage sound sources but also a high level of feedback resistance.

“The MD 445 is the most powerful microphone in our MD range,” says Kai Lange, senior product manager with Sennheiser. “If its sister model, the MD 435, is the beauty, the MD 445 certainly is the beast. It effortlessly cuts through loud stage sound and establishes an audibly greater proximity to the vocals. Its direct, high-resolution sound gives vocals a totally new richness, intensity and assertiveness.”

The acoustics of the MD 445 have been tailored to modern stage set-ups with “B” stages and runways in front of the P.A. At the core of the acoustic design is a newly developed voice coil made of lightweight aluminum-copper. Its fast transient response ensures a very detailed, nuanced and transparent sound that is complemented by rich mid-range and bass.

Thanks to its high-rejection, supercardioid pickup pattern, the MD 445 has enormous gain before feedback. Dynamics are wide at 146 dB(A) and the microphone can handle sound pressure levels of up to 163 dB/1 kHz.

The mic is built to withstand a life on tour, featuring a metal casing and a shock-mounted capsule to protect from structure-borne noise. A hum-compensating coil shields the microphone against electromagnetic interference.

For use with Sennheiser’s wireless transmitters, the capsule of the MD 445 is also available as MM 445 microphone head. Fitted with Sennheiser’s standard capsule interface, the MM 445 can be used with Sennheiser wireless series ranging from the evolution wireless G4 and 2000 series to Digital 6000 and Digital 9000.

The MD 445 microphone and MM 445 microphone head each retail at USD $619.
